There is no documentation needed for credit monitoring services. Simply submit a Claim Form online at www.HomeDepotBreachSettlement.com by October 29, 2016. Documentation is required to receive reimbursement of losses related to the data breach. You may file a claim for both credit monitoring and reimbursement of losses.





LEGAL NOTICE

If You Used a Credit or Debit Card at a Self-Checkout Lane at a U.S. Home Depot Store Between April 10, 2014 and September 13, 2014 or Received Notice From Home Depot That Your Information Was Compromised, You May Be Eligible for Benefits from a Data Breach Class Action Settlement.

A settlement has been proposed in lawsuits against The Home Depot, Inc. ("Home Depot") relating to Home Depot customers whose credit or debit card information or e-mail information was stolen as a result of a data breach that was first disclosed in September 2014 ("Home Depot Data Breach").

Who is included in the Settlement?
You are a member of the Settlement Class if: (1) you used your credit or debit card at a self-checkout terminal at a U.S. Home Depot store between April 10, 2014 and September 13, 2014 and your payment card information was compromised; or (2) you received notification that your e-mail address was compromised; or (3) you received an e-mail notice stating that you are a Class Member. If you are not sure whether you are included in the Settlement Class, call 1-844-204-4489 or visit www.HomeDepotBreachSettlement.com.

What does the Settlement provide?
Cash Fund: A Settlement Fund will provide payments to consumers who have documented losses caused by the Home Depot Data Breach. If you are included in the Settlement Class, you may be entitled to receive reimbursement of your documented losses relating to the Home Depot Data Breach, as well as time spent remedying issues relating to the data breach, up to a maximum amount set forth in the Notice available on www.HomeDepotBreachSettlement.com

Monitoring Services: If you used a credit or debit card at a self-checkout lane at a U.S. Home Depot store between April 10, 2014 and September 13, 2014 and your payment card information was compromised, you are eligible to enroll in 18 months of free Identity Guard® Essentials identity monitoring services without providing documentation.

Settlement Class Members will have access to a specific hotline maintained by Identity Guard® where you can speak to specialized fraud investigators, who will provide any appropriate remediation services at no cost, including contacting creditors and other involved parties to address and resolve issues such as unauthorized credit card charges and bank fees. This service also includes: (a) Social Security number monitoring; (b) online "black market" monitoring; (c) financial account identity verification alerts; (d) financial account takeover alerts; (e) identity theft victim assistance; (f) lost wallet protection; (g) online username and password protection; and (f) an identity theft insurance policy.

You may make claims for either or both reimbursement under the Cash Fund and for Monitoring Services. To submit a claim go to www.HomeDepotBreachSettlement.com.

How can I get a payment?
Submit a Claim Form online or by mail by October 29, 2016.

What are my rights?
Unless you exclude yourself, you will be bound by the Court's decisions and you will give up your right to sue Home Depot for the legal claims resolved by this Settlement. If you want to keep your right to sue Home Depot for the legal claims resolved by this Settlement, you must exclude yourself by July 18, 2016. If you stay in the Settlement, you may object to it by July 18, 2016. The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia will hold a hearing in this case (In re: The Home Depot, Inc., Customer Data Security Breach Litigation, No. 1:14-md—02583-TWT) on August 12, 2016 to consider whether to approve the Settlement, a request for attorneys' fees to be paid by Home Depot separate from and in addition to the Cash Fund, reimbursement of reasonable costs and expenses, and service awards for the Settlement Class Representatives. If you have not excluded yourself from the Settlement, you or your own lawyer may appear and speak at the hearing at your own expense.

So true. There's Michaels, Target, Home Depot, OPM, etc. just in the past 12 months. Aside from the dubious scammers, looks like the main winners of all these breaches are the Equifax, Trans-Union, Experian, etc. that are probably securing these large probably multi-million dollar contracts from the companies that are now offering the monitoring services.

What a sham!

It has become the norm for companies to offer "credit monitoring" as reparations for running insecure commerce operations.


People should be monetarily compensated for the undue stress of wondering if all their money is going to be stolen one day due to the bad guys taking the all the data that has been stolen, and one day emptying bank accounts..


How would consumers ever prove it? All they get is "credit monitoring," which is really worthless!

But wouldn't a judge have had to approve the requirement, and if so, deemed it reasonable? Plus the plaintiff class must have been OK too, if these terms were finalized as such?

you can get credit monitoring for free easily without being hacked. not sure why they'd think credit monitoring would be an acceptable way to reimburse people for their losses..
